Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace made its debut in May 1999. If you were a Star Wars fan then, it meant you had waited 16 years to watch another installment of the epic space fantasy saga in the theatres since 1983’s Return of the Jedi.
Nostalgia. What does it really mean? Why is it important? Why does it hold so much power over us?
It is an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for top 10 Star Wars lightsaber battles.
So you detested The Last Jedi, and you signed the petition to have that ill-fated episode stricken from canon. The effort will go nowhere, and though I’m one of those fans who abjectly loved the film, I’d of course have to admit it left many of us in a teeth-gnashing uproar.
Hey, what's up everyone? So unless you've been living under a rock your entire life, you've seen Star Wars. Ever since Disney acquired the rights to Star Wars, they have been pushing it. Some say too much, while most even those who say that will still go and see whatever it is they make. Because heck, it's Star Wars!

The Star Wars saga is one of the most recognizable and lore-filled science fiction brands in existence. It spans four decades and has a committed fan base making it unlikely to slow down any time soon. With Solo: A Star Wars Story released in a few months I thought it would be a good time to look back at every space scene that we loved from each movie.
Next year Star Wars: The Phantom Menace celebrates its 20th anniversary. As that milestone approaches, discussions have increased about The Phantom Edit. Younger (and newer) fans may be aware of this unauthorized edit, but not know the details surrounding its creation. An essential understanding of the context of the time, as well as the intentions of the editor, is needed as the world once again is talking about Jar Jar Binks. This article is the third and final part of a three-part series.
When a troubled indie movie called Star Wars took the world by storm in 1977, it created an enthusiastic fandom united in their love for the galaxy far away. However, as this galaxy expanded, so did the divide amongst it's fans to a point of having one of the most divisive fandoms out there. Now, while it's hardly a surprise considering we're talking about 40 plus years of hugely varying content, one still can't help but to wonder: is it even possible for the fandom to return to that uncompromised love for all things Star Wars that defined these early years?
